Don’t wait until the last minute to get your house organized for your next move. Follow these simple techniques to make your move day a breeze!
1. Allocate a room for give-aways/trash: Set aside a space in your home where you can put everything you plan to donate or throw-away. Once you’ve compiled everything, plan an afternoon around taking these items to donation centers or to the dump. This way you’ll save yourself some time and $$ (gas).
2. Place boxes in each room: Pre-assemble and place labeled boxes in each room. Each night, spend a little bit of time packing rooms one-by-one. Don’t remove the boxes until the day of your move. This way, if you need something you’ll know where it is. Also, you’ll need more boxes than you think, so it’s best to grab a few extra just in case.
3. Get into a routine: Set an allotted time each day/night to complete a specific task. For example, before you go to bed, pack 10 items. Or before you leave the house, pack 5 items. Getting into a routine such as these will greatly ease the burden of having to pack your entire home at the last second.
4. Set aside cleaning supplies: Chances are you’re going to have to do some cleaning before you move out of your home (and maybe even some cleaning in your new home) Set aside a box of cleaning supplies for when the furniture and everything is packed.
